One creative Apex Legends fan has come up with a skin concept for Octane that would put a fresh new spin on the character for the New Year.

There have been plenty of fan-made skins shared with the Apex Legends community that players wouldn’t mind seeing added to the game.

Now we have another great skin that would be a perfect fit for Octane in 2020, no matter what Apex itself brings.

Reddit user neen87 shared their design for a “Luchador” Octane on the official Apex Legends subreddit and it looks perfect for the game’s resident adrenaline junkie.

It gives him a red and blue color scheme, but the most important part of this skin is that it finally gives Octane a cape.

His facemask has also been recolored and the ferocious-looking eyes are perfect and really sell the luchador look neen was going for with this skin.

Apex Legends does have its one-year anniversary coming up, but whether or not they’ll celebrate with an event similar to Overwatch remains to be seen.

If they do, Luchador Octane could be the kind of crazy original skin that would be a hit with players, since it’s already pretty popular on Reddit as well.

EAThe Holo Day Bash event ends in early January.

Speaking of Apex Legends events, the game still has its Christmas-themed “Holo-Day” Bash event going on, where players can unlock special holiday skins and cosmetics.

According to EA’s website, the Mirage Holo-Day Bash Collection event is scheduled to leave the Apex Legends servers on January 7.

This means players will only have a few more days left to complete any challenges and acquire any cosmetic items they were looking for.

Apex Legends developer Daniel Klein has revealed the five most popular legends from Season 7 – and it should come as no surprise that Horizon is right up there already.

As the Apex Legends seasons have unfolded, it’s been easy for players to chop and change the legends they use seeing as a new character is introduced which each major, season starting update. 

The new character always receives huge attention as players want to test out the new content, but sometimes, they don’t stick around and can immediately fall to the bottom of the pile once fans are seemingly bored with them. 

In the case of Horizon and Apex Legends Season 7, she has been able to stick around as one of the most played legends – even cementing her spot amongst some of the battle royale’s long-term favorites.

Speaking on The Third Party: An Apex Legends podcast, Respawn Senior Game Designer Daniel Klein revealed how the list of most played legends in the new season had started to shape up.

“Wraith, Bloodhound, Horizon, Octane, and then Lifeline, that’s the pick order right now,” Klein told the podcast hosts in relation to the top five, noting that Horizon had started to settle in the top five after her initial explosion in use. 

Octane being so high might surprise a few players, and as Klein points out, he doesn’t “win a lot of games,” but he’s so fun to play because of his speedy abilities. Klein also noted that there is an “interesting situation” with Bloodhound because they have a high pick rate, but they don’t win a lot of games.

Additionally, the Apex developer revealed that Loba has also seen a rise in her trios win rate after her Ultimate received a bit of a shake up at the start of Season 7. Though, he didn’t note just how popular and used that she has become. 

As the season unfolds, some currently lesser-played legends might see a boost in usage after Respawn rolls out patches, so, we’ll have to wait and see as to whether or not the top five is shaken up or if it stays the same moving forward.
